Welcome to Solar Boat/STEM!


Solar Cup is an education program in which high school teams, sponsored by The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) and its member agencies, learn about water conservation and renewable energy by building and racing a solar powered boat during a seven-month period. The teams compete against each other in both sprint and endurance races at Lake Skinner, located in Temecula. As part of the program, the teams also research and complete various technical reports and create a water-related public service announcement. 



Solar Cup is an opportunity for students to gain understanding in the following areas:
  • Promote stewardship of natural resources, including water conservation 
  • Increase understanding of water supply and water quality challenges 
  • Promote use of renewable energy, through hands-on application of math, science and engineering 
  • Increase awareness about water industry careers 
Please visit the solar cup website for more information on the competition!
Due to COVID-19, our program will be a little different this year. Solar Cup competition will begin in October and will be online. Activities and challenges will include hands on kits for students will utilize. We will also be extending our activities to include robotics and engineering projects, facilitate STEM programs and camps to support our elementary and middle school students, and guest speakers from a variety of STEM careers.
We meet Fridays at lunch (11:55am-12:25pm)
